Department for Work and Pensions to launch new job posting and matching service - Turn2us

Department for Work and Pensions information about Universal Jobmatch (link opens in a new window)The Department for Work and Pensions is to launch a new job posting and matching service,Universal Jobmatch, in Autumn 2012.

The aim of the Jobcentre Plus, web-based service is to speed up the recruitment process - benefiting jobseekers and employers.

Any jobseeker will be able to set up an account, and upload or build their CVs at any time of the day. The new technology will automatically match their CVs and skills to suitable jobs that are posted on the new service.  Universal Jobmatch will also help highlight any skills gaps that a jobseeker may have on their CV and signpost them to where they can get support to address these.

Jobseekers can receive alerts and, whenever a new job is placed that matches their job search criteria, they will receive an email notification about that job. 

One of the advantages of the new service for benefit claimants is not having to provide evidence of their jobsearch activity on Universal Jobmatch as their personal adviser will be able to view this online.
